Evander Kane's future in Edmonton is uncertain. Explore the latest trade rumors and analysis.

The once-symbiotic relationship between Evander Kane and the Edmonton Oilers seems to have soured.

The enigmatic winger, known for his scoring touch and physical edge, has struggled mightily since the calendar flipped to 2024. Kane has just 15 points in his last 36 games and hasn’t rippled the twine in 18 consecutive appearances.

Kane’s frustration boiled over when he voiced concerns over his diminishing role within the Oilers’ lineup. The situation hit a new low when he was a healthy scratch during a recent tilt with the Ottawa Senators.

Is Evander Kane’s Time in Edmonton Over?

NHL insider Frank Seravalli of the Daily Faceoff believes Kane’s behavior is rubbing the Oilers’ brass the wrong way, and that the team might need to explore moving him on. A trade is complicated by Kane’s two remaining years with an AAV of $5.125 million.

While Kane holds a no-movement clause, there’s a chance he could be open to waiving it this summer. A change of scenery might provide the fresh start he needs and allow him to maximize his playing time elsewhere.
